Some of you may think this is a bit of a cop out for the #1 spot, but I do agree. There is just something about this sport that keeps you coming back for more and that feeling isn't often easily described.

Lewis Glenn agrees: "Translated from French (might lose a bit in the exercise): The heart has its reasons that reason cannot explain"

Lewis I think that translated perfectly!
